For those of you that don't reminisce about those
classic SNL moments, here's an explanation for you:
The history of "more cowbell"
"More cowbell" is an American pop culture catch phrase originally derived from an April 8, 2000 Saturday Night Live comedy sketch about the recording of the song "(Don't Fear)The Reaper" by Blue Öyster Cult. The sketch featured guest host Christopher Walken as music producer Bruce Dickinson and Will Ferrell as fictional cowbell player Gene Frenkle. In the television special Saturday Night Live: 101 Most Unforgettable Moments, this sketch is moment number five. (snagged from morecowbell.Dj)

If you put a lower-case “x” to the right of a capital “E” (Ex) you can begin to see a hint of an arrow, though it is clumsy and extremely abstract. I thought that, if I could develop this concept of an “arrow” it could be promoted as a symbol for speed and precision, both FedEx communicative attributes. And, by the way, different kinds of arrows were utilized with some of the other semi-final candidates, though none of those were “hidden.”

Tell yourself at every step in the design process that someone has undoubtedly already thought of this and what can you do to really set it apart. In design, and particularly logo design, the pessimistic axiom that “everything has already been done” is becoming more and more true, and it is only the virtuous designer who can continue to stand out in a sea of sameness.

Classmate A is living in Colorado, getting married and has a wedding website, compliments of a free template.
Classmate B is now living in North Carolina I believe, views the website and makes the following comment in the guestbook.
"This is sweet, never seen one like this before. But yet we are from minot, and so theres not too many people with Broadband yet, im sure!! Ha,ha!"
There are so many things about this statement that really chaps my a**. First of all, HELLO?!?!? You've never seen one like this before? Where the h*** have you been? I had my own wedding website five years ago. One I designed and built myself. My wonderfully talented programmer friends added every feature this one has, including online RSVP, etc. etc. Thank you very much.
Second of all, not too many people in Minot with broadband? Give me a break. These people that move out of ND for 'bigger and better' and then dis Minot need to get real. I've personally been in the web industry for 11 years and yes, we in North Dakota do view our sites through a broadband connection. I would love for Tom at SRT to school Classmate B on all the advanced services that companies in ND do provide.
I wish Classmate B would read this blog post, but since I'm from Minot I may have to hand write it with my quill pen, get on my horse and deliver it to the local Post Office.
